Matrix Sample Tracking software has been chosen by the Research Division of a major, multi-national pharmaceutical company. It is being implemented at sites in America, Europe and Asia to track samples and slides through the entire pre-clinical, Safety Assessment Division.
Peter Mansfield, President of Zumatrix said that the initial contract for Matrix Sample Tracking software is for 100 concurrent users at three sites world-wide, with a single Oracle database within the US. He said that the configurability and flexibility of Matrix software was a major factor in winning the contract and that the project from start to validation and completion would be completed in six months. At present it is right on schedule.
Sample Tracker may be used in both highly regulated and unregulated industries and provides exactly the same user experience no matter how you access the application; rich client on your LAN, thin client on your WAN, or via the Web using your standard browser.
The unique OneTime Configuration tools automatically create a unified Sample Tracking configuration for both desktop and web use. Once a screen has been built using the unique OneTime Configuration Tools, it is immediately available on your network or via the Web.
Matrix software is developed by Autoscribe, Ltd in an ISO 9001-2000 certified process. The latest releases of Matrix use the Microsoft .NET platform in order to deploy easily and quickly.
Zumatrix, Inc. provides software products and support for laboratories throughout North America as a distributor for Autoscribe, Ltd.
Sample Tracker supports "Chain of Custody" requirements, version control and audit trailing. It assists in capturing changes made to submitter and sample information. Sample Tracker is the right application for managers or operators, who want better visibility of their operations but do not want to implement a full LIMS. However, when you wish to do so, there is a simple upgrade path to the
Matrix Gemini LIMS family.
Sample Tracker allows the registration of samples, the creation of worklists, progress / status checking, chain of custody management and reporting. Details of sample submitters, product types and users, with their associated authority, are all stored within the system.
Sample Tracker sample registration provides a “browser” for selecting products / substances and can automatically assign a series of tests to the sample. Sample Tracker sample registration also offers a notes database field. Automatic label generation with bar-codes is supported. Sample test suites can be assigned automatically and if required modified to accommodate changes in the testing regimes.
Sample Tracker is supplied with a suite of fully functional reports including Worksheets, Work Pending, Sample Status and Audit Trail. Any laboratory system should comply with GLP (Good Laboratory Practice), and Sample Tracker is no exception. Any changes to data are recorded along with the date and time of the change and identity of the user who made the change. All such historical data may be reported as required. In order to accommodate GLP, GxP, FDA, ISO9000 and other regulatory requirements, the system automatically records who performed essential functions related to a sample and when they occurred. Once entered, records cannot be removed from the database. Instead, Sample Tracker retains revisions of each record within the database which can be used to track the history of a sample.
